Some know me as “The Lucky Bunny Guy,” others as Rich de Simone. When doing this interview, I was asked what advice I’d give to aspiring artists. I said, “take a business class.” If I were to add anything else, I’d suggest taking up meditation very seriously. In future posts I’ll go into greater detail about establishing a meditation practice. For years I thought meditation was some new age hippy thing and have since learned otherwise. The benefits of mediating are immeasurable and makes establishing the habit a no-brainer.

Hello, my name is Rich de Simone, I’m one of 7 billion artists out there. We’re all born artists and creators and I’m happy to share that with you. When I was a child people often laughed at me. These days, I’d rather folks laugh at my work.

Painting in progress…Things took an unexpected turn which lead to sanding between coats. More work but the end result will be worth the effort. Reminded me that you can’t control the waves, you just gotta ride (or sand) them.

The comedy podcast I was on last year is being replayed because it was the highest downloaded episode. The comedy here is that I’m a visual artist, not a comedian. It’ll be up for a short time before being replaced with all new episodes. Hear me talk honestly about being an artist, why advertising sucks, poopy pants, Japanese tentacle porn and more! http://evpo.st/1jZyMnt

When some learn that I’m an artist, they often say they can’t draw a straight line. But that shouldn’t stop someone from drawing, creating, or whatever. When we were children, and closer to our natural creative selves, it didn’t matter. Straight lines don’t exist in nature. Fortunately we have rulers and in this case, tape, for stuff like that.

Painting in progress…The color swatches  remind me of people. Each has strengths, but when you put those strengths together, they produce something more than individuals could alone. The quote, “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts,” is attributed to Aristotle. The toxic fumes from the making of this piece are attributed to me.

Looks like my Camo Flag silkscreen hangs in Power 106 studios in Los Angeles. Here’s a pic with legendary hip hop journalist, Elliot Wilson, and radio hosts, Los Angeles Leakers. Great seeing where my artwork ends up. Thanks to Germizm for sending the pic!

Sunday, my girlfriend and I took an aromatherapy candlemaking class. I never thought I’d make scented candles, but jumped at the chance to be out of my comfort zone. Taking random classes is great for personal growth and preparing you for blackouts. Creatively or electrically.

Working on multiple projects at once is a good way for ideas to have sex with each other. Hopefully something rewarding develops rather than a relative you’re ashamed of and only see during holidays and at funerals. #showyourwork #art
